“I couldn’t even imagine it. I don’t even get colds easily. I get health check-ups every year and never got a cancer diagnosis. They said nothing was wrong with me. I told the hospital that my chest area was hurting and to connect me to a university hospital. When they tested me, they immediately saw that it’s cancer. I felt strange when they called me to the blood tumor department.” He then continued, “They said it was cancer, that they were almost certain. I was so mad from my perspective. I did health check-ups every year but had this big disease.”
